For me, theme is important when playing a board game. Just like choosing a movie to watch or book to read it matters to me.

Theme is a much discussed topic in the world of board gaming. It is certainly not the only thing that matters and it’s not the most important thing, but, for me, it adds a lot to the games I play and love. But love it or hate it, or whether it matters to you or not, themes exist in board games and sometimes that theme can engage and add to the experience for some gamers. And sometimes a retheme is just what a board game needs to “bump it up a notch” and change the way you think and feel about a game.

I really admire the creative thought that goes into a great game retheme. Matching the theme to the mechanics of the gameplay can help explain the objectives of the game. Recreating a game inside a pre-existing world or genre appeals to the Fanboy in me and can help me relate to how the game plays. As a graphic designer, I appreciate a beautiful redesign that improves the look of the original game, and sometimes a retheme will just make a game that much more “cool” (and like beauty, coolness is in the eye of the beholder).

I’ll start this list with some of my favourites and may add more as I go along but please add your favourite board game rethemes to this GeekList. Feel free to add your own rethemes but if you add someone else's idea, please remember to give them credit.

Tron retheme of Tsuro

I haven’t played Tsuro yet but thought it sounded interesting. But when I saw this retheme using the light bike scene from Tron, I was instantly brought back to all those hours playing the video game in the 80s. This theme is a lot more approachable for my tastes.

Abandon Ship rethemed at JAWS

This is a good friend’s retheme. Instead of saving the rats from the sinking ship you are trying save people from the shark in the water! Brilliant idea to add more tension to the game! You can almost hear the music in your head while you're playing (daaaa-dum! daa-dum! da-dum!) I was one of the lucky few to have received a copy of this one as a gift. Now it's the only version of the game that we play.

I don’t really know what Adventure Time is but I love the cute look and the layout of these cards! Absolutely gorgeous work that makes me want a copy of this game just because it’s so adorable!

Someone named Ashley Jones, did a great Doctor Who retheme of Fluxx.

I don't believe these photos are on BGG anywhere but I think the chaos of Fluxx matches the whole timey-wimey, wibbley-wobbley part of Doctor Who brilliantly! I wish I had thought of this one first!

My retheme has enough cards for 15 different countries (in 15 different colours - but some are similar), so before each game the group picks 5 countries (trying not to pick similar colours) they want to visit and they try to see as many of the 5 sites in each of those 5 countries.

The back of the card looks like a Canadian passport and the front of each card is a snapshot of somewhere I (or my wife) would like to actually visit. I tried to pick ones that looked like they were taken while on a real vacation, rather than promo shots.

Where The Wild Things Are retheme of Love Letter

Something about the game Love Letter makes people want to retheme this game. I’ve never read the book or watched the movie but these cards kind of make me curious about both of them.

My Doctor Who retheme (of The Walking Dead Card Game and 6 Nimmt!/Category 5)called Geronimo!

104 different cards/creatures. I've changed the name of the game to Geronimo! I understand that "Nimmt" loosely translates to "take" in English and while there is no Doctor Who word or phrase that uses the word "take" (it's not really a "take" kind of show), I thought Geronimo kind of fit. I put an exclamation point at the end to match the original game.

Board Game: 6 nimmt!


Board Game: 6 nimmt!


Hero cards are the different versions of the Doctor (new series only for me - although I don't mind Tom Baker) and the many Companions and "Almost-Companions" for more Hero Card options.

Board Game: The Walking Dead Card Game


Zero cards in the 6 Nimmt Plus expansion.

My retheme of For Sale, called Tech Trader. The idea is to buy and sell technology from all my favourite sci-fi shows/movies/franchise (instead of real estate), a bit like Saul Rubinek's character, Kivas Fajo, in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Most Toys" where Data is kidnapped (or is it android-napped?) by a collector of rare technology and artifacts.
